2021 Annual Report

From the steep, snowy mountains of Svalbard to the shores of Hudson Bay, you were with us every step of the way last year as we focused our efforts on sustaining a future for polar bears. In our Annual Report to members, we’re pleased to share highlights of what we accomplished together in 2021 on behalf of polar bears and their sea ice home.


Polar Bears International has been a leader in research for 30 years, shaping polar bear conservation. Here’s what you made possible in 2021.

Protecting Moms and Cubs

Your generosity allowed us to begin developing new technology to find and map polar bear dens, which are hidden under the snow. This is critically important as more industry moves into the Arctic, threatening dens and putting moms and cubs in harm’s way.

Maternal Den Study

Thanks to your commitment, we continued our Maternal Den Study in Svalbard in 2021, working with the Norwegian Polar Institute and the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance. Insights gained will help us better protect denning families during this vulnerable time.

New Tracking Devices

Because of you, we were able to test small, temporary “Burr on Fur” tags to track polar bears, developed through a partnership with 3M. In 2021, we tested the tags on both wild and zoo bears, and will continue to refine designs based on the results.

“Detect and Protect” Research

Being able to detect an approaching polar bear even in a heavy snowfall, fog, or the dead of night would make a real difference in keeping polar bears and people safe. Your support is allowing us to refine the use of motion-tracking radar as an early warning system.

Other Projects

From research on Russia’s Wrangel Island to genetics studies and a long-term sea ice ecology project, we continued support for a number of key projects with partners from the University of Alberta to Environment and Climate Change Canada and Brigham Young University.

Partner Spotlight: San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance

Polar Bears International has partnered with the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance (SDZWA) on polar bear research for nearly two decades, including field work in Alaska, Canada, and Svalbard, as well as zoo-based research that would be impossible to conduct with wild bears.

Our long-term Maternal Den Study in Svalbard is one example of our work together, a project that involves monitoring polar bear moms and cubs with non-invasive, remote cameras during the period when they first emerge from their dens. 

“Polar bear maternal den research is one of the last frontiers of polar bear biology,” said Dr. Megan Owen, vice president of conservation science at SDZWA. “The study is a good example of how Polar Bears International brings us right to the front lines of polar bear habitat, polar bear management, and the communities that live with polar bears. I am extremely proud to be working with PBI and grateful to team up on really challenging conservation issues. As long as we have the capacity to work together on solutions for polar bears, I have hope.”

Global Education

Our digital outreach allows teachers, students, and life-long learners to follow their curiosity and become inspired to get involved. Here’s what you made possible in 2021.

Tundra Connections®

Thanks to your generosity, our live Tundra Connections webcasts and live chats reached over 200,000 people around the world in 2021, giving viewers a chance to see wild polar bears, engage with scientists, and ask questions.

Polar Bear Tracker

Your support helps visitors understand the relationship between polar bears and sea ice as they follow real bears through the seasons on a map of Hudson Bay. The map also highlights our research projects across the Arctic.

New Website

Because of you, we unveiled a beautiful new website in 2021, including an interactive education center with new unit and lesson plans, activities for teachers and students, fun polar bear facts, and ways to get involved.

Educational Partners

From Discovery Education to Microsoft’s Flipgrid, Connected North, and TakingITGlobal, your generosity supports teamwork with partners, amplifying our reach to classrooms worldwide, including students in Northern communities.

Arctic Ambassador Centers

Your commitment to polar bear conservation helps sustain our network of 49 zoos and aquariums in the U.S., Canada, and Europe—greatly expanding our ability to tell the polar bears’ story and motivate action while also facilitating research partnerships.

Partner Spotlight: Paws Up for Polar Bears

Thanks to Emily Miller, a graduate student at Alaska Pacific University, we added powerful new curricula to our Education Center in 2021. Designed for grades 3-5, the engaging, solutions-based lesson plans help teach kids about polar bears and climate change.

Miller was inspired to create the Paws Up lessons as part of her master’s thesis after graduating from Polar Bears International’s Climate Alliance program—an experience she calls “a pivotal moment” for her as an educator. When she proposed the curricula to our education team, she mentioned the difficulty of finding simple, solutions-based lesson plans on climate change for this age group.

“This is such a great project that fits in so well with what we’re trying to do,” said Alysa McCall, our director of conservation outreach. “By reaching students and teachers, and by offering really great and interesting educational pieces about polar bears, we can help foster this new generation of conservationists.”

The lesson plans were downloaded by teachers more than 600 times in the first two months alone. A survey of those who used them overwhelmingly confirmed that the curricula made them feel more confident in teaching students about climate change.

Conflict Resolution

With more polar bears coming ashore in more places as the sea ice melts, our conflict-reduction efforts are designed to keep polar bears and people safe. Here’s what you made possible in 2021.

Polar Bear Safe Communities

Polar bear-human conflict is a growing problem as the Arctic warms, which is why we’re working with frontline communities to help them stay ahead of the curve. Your generosity has allowed us to expand the Polar Bear Safe Community concept.

Bear-Safe Tools

From bear-safe waste bins to deterrence tools like bear spray, cracker shells, and modern bear traps, your support helps us share information on best practices and work with frontline Arctic communities on identifying the tools they need to stay safe.

Safety Messaging

With polar bear encounters increasing in the North, we’re working with partners to share safety messaging on how to avoid conflict. This includes polar bear safety coloring books in different languages tailored to different parts of the Arctic.

Information Exchange

Professionals who work with brown bears can share insights that will help Arctic communities prepare for polar bear encounters. In 2021, your support allowed us to invite experts to Churchill to assess current practices and make recommendations.

World Ranger Day Award

Every year we help raise awareness about the courage and commitment of wildlife officers working in the Arctic to keep polar bears and people safe. Our World Ranger Day Award honors a team or an individual on the frontlines.

Project Spotlight: Reducing Attractants

Polar bears have a keen sense of smell and often follow their nose, which is why we know that reducing attractants is an important part of coexisting with wildlife. In 2021 we worked on a handful of projects with the waste transfer facility in Churchill, locally known as L5. 

This work included supporting the first phase of a waste audit, bringing a specialist in to work with employees and community members. Additionally, we tested one of our “Bear-dar” radar systems on the roof of the building during the peak of the fall season. It was great to work with local employees at L5 and members of the community on both projects, and our team even saw two polar bears walk right in front of the radar in late October! We feel fortunate to work with partners like the Town of Churchill on both low-tech and high-tech solutions to support ways to safely live with polar bears.

Through media stories, live cams, videos, and compelling photos, we help keep polar bears and the Arctic top of mind, highlighting the need to protect the bears and their fragile ecosystem. Here’s what you made possible in 2021.

Polar Bear Cams

When people fall in love with polar bears, they’re inspired to get involved with their conservation. Your support allows us to touch hearts and minds through our live Polar Bear Cams, as well as our Beluga and Northern Lights Cams, streamed in partnership with

Global Media Coverage

Global narratives help shape global policy, which is why we strive to share the polar bears’ story with the world. In 2021, we had a global reach of 2.2 billion people, with stories in the AP, BBC, New York Times, Guardian, AFP, Smithsonian, and more.

Video Production

Your support makes it possible for us to share the beauty of polar bears and the Arctic through our video outreach, educating the public and motivating action. In 2021, we had over 200,000 YouTube views and tens of thousands more on social media.

Social Media

Because of you, we were able to add a media specialist to our team in 2021, growing our followers and deepening engagement through stories and reels. We also launched a Photography Ambassador Program, partnering with key nature influencers.

Partner Spotlight:

More than 10 years ago, approached us with the idea of setting up a Polar Bear Cam in Churchill, Manitoba, the well-known polar bear gathering place. Guided by their motto of “Never Stop Learning,”’s goal is to inspire viewers to fall in love with the natural world.

The Polar Bear Cam was a huge success and we now live-stream not only polar bears from Churchill in partnership with, but also the gathering of beluga whales in late summer and the northern lights in winter.

“The cams help people experience the wonder of polar bears and the Arctic no matter where they live, which is a critical part of conservation,” said Krista Wright, executive director of Polar Bears International. “In addition, partners with us on our Tundra Connections webcasts and live chats, bringing an educational component to viewers who want to learn more about this incredible ecosystem.”

We feel extremely fortunate to partner with on these nature cams, which reach a global audience. We are also grateful for the generous funding they provide through the Annenberg Foundation—a relationship that dates back to 2010!

Policy & Advocacy

Taking part in effecting change will not only help polar bears but people, too. Here’s what you made possible in 2021.

New Policy & Advocacy Department

In 2021, your generosity enabled us to launch a new policy and advocacy department to complement our research, education, conflict-reduction, and outreach efforts. Building on existing programs like our Climate Alliance training, the goal is to empower each of us to help move the dial.

U.N. Climate Talks

From representation at the COP26 climate talks to ongoing policy involvement, we’re working to protect the polar bears’ future. This year, you helped nine young leaders participate in COP26 and supported an initiative that helped bring members of the global BIPOC community to the summit.

Science-Based Policy  

Our decades of peer-reviewed research on polar bears helps inform policies that impact their well-being. We strive to provide the best available science to governments, institutions, and policy makers, so they can act in the best interest of the bears.

Polar Bear Specialist Group

Every 2 to 3 years, scientists from the 5 polar bear nations meet to set research and conservation priorities for the world’s polar bears. As one of the few nonprofits invited to take part, our staff scientists regularly contribute to these high-level discussions.

Policy Highlight: Young Leaders at COP26

Climate action is urgently important for future generations of polar bears and people. At the U.N. Climate Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, the young generation sought to be heard amidst the commotion.

During a formal meeting between all 195 national governments and the U.N. president, Panama’s negotiating team handed their precious floor time to a small group of young leaders. In this window, Panama’s deputy lead negotiator, Mari Helena Castillo Mariscal, 25, delivered a speech co-written by dozens of young people at COP26, including Polar Bears International’s delegation. Thanks to a strong social media push, over 21,000 young people from 140 nations co-signed the speech in less than a day. These climate negotiations are exclusive and difficult to attend so when Mari delivered the statement, she brought thousands of voices from all corners of the world into the room­­—reminding world leaders that limiting warming to “1.5 degrees is the simplest moral choice in all of history.” A Washington Post reporter covered the story of this intervention, and you can watch Mari deliver the statement here.
